Tool Time: Top Ten Sliders

Stoneburner has a great slider already

Even considering the Yankees focus mostly on having their pitchers develop the curveball in lieu of a slider, they still have some pretty special sliders in the organization. Here are the top ten sliders among pitching prospects in the Yankees' farm system.

Honorable Mention Brandon Braboy: Late to pitching, Braboy has done an admirable job developing a non-existent breaking pitch into a slider with plus potential. He gets good breaking action on it when he throws it over the top, but often times he'll throw it from the side and that affects his control. Consistency is the one missing ingredient right now in what otherwise is a very good pitch... Recommended Stories
